– How do we recommend choosing the right colour for your kitchen?

Choosing the right colour to implement into your kitchen space can be scary and daunting, as it can go so right or very wrong, depending on what colour you choose and how you compliment the shade. It is said by many that we all see colours differently and in our own unique way. So our choice of colour may always be influenced by what is trending and popular at that time. Our advice would be don’t jump straight into what’s trending and choose a colour you may go off in the next five years. Choose a colour you’ve always loved to be sure you equally love and adore your kitchen for years to come.

Use your chosen colour carefully. Don’t get too excited and splash it everywhere and anywhere. Find another colour that compliments your choice nicely, and combine the two, or three, to work seamlessly across your kitchen.

If you’re still scared about implementing colour into your kitchen, try doing it through the use of kitchen appliances and accessories, that way you can easily change them out if you one day decide you don’t like the colour anymore!

But we think you should be brave, put your favourite colour wherever you want it to go! Its your kitchen! Be sure to tag us in your colourful creations on Instagram, @TilemountainUK
